Mineral make up has become a familiar term within the makeup and cosmetics industry but many consumers are often unsure as to what truly differentiates it from conventional over-the-counter makeup products.
Like the name suggests, mineral makeup is crafted from a number of different natural minerals, including iron oxides, mica, and zinc oxides. Together, these minerals work to provide coverage, give a natural colour to the skin and reflect light particles for a healthy and luminous glow. So, it’s a natural sunscreen. Major benefits also include the fact that mineral make up generally doesn’t clog the pores and allows the skin to breathe. As a result, it’s an ideal option for everyone, as well as those of us who have problem or sensitive skin, as well as those who have just undergone Cosmetic Procedures such as Laser Rejuvenation or Facial Peels or even Face Lift Surgery.
Mineral make up is often more expensive than over-the-counter cosmetics however it is worth the investment as the benefits can outweigh the cost.
